How do I list my evidence?

Once you’ve logged in and started your application you’ll be asked to enter the title of your specialty.

  • If you’re applying for a CEGPR you won’t see this page.
  • If you’re applying in a CCT specialty please choose your specialty from the list.
  • If you’re applying in a non-CCT specialty please enter the title of your specialty in the box.

Next you’ll be asked to confirm your specialty details are correct. Once you have confirmed this, it won’t be possible to change your specialty without withdrawing the whole application and starting again.

Evidence of your qualifications

You’ll need to enter the details of any specialist medical qualification(s) and any other relevant qualifications you have. You should submit evidence of the qualifications you list and the curriculum or syllabus you followed.

Listing your evidence

In the evidence section of your application, you must list each piece of evidence you intend to submit. If you don’t intend to submit evidence for a section, you need to confirm this or you won’t be able to submit your application. 

This part of the application is divided up to match the specialty specific guidance that you should have already downloaded.

Important information about your application

The online application system for CESR, CEGPR and Review applications changed on 6 November 2018. We’ve listened to feedback from applicants through a survey and at training events asking to provide evidence electronically, so have introduced this option to make it easier and less burdensome for doctors.

Applications created in GMC online before the application changes on 6 November, any evidence you intend to submit to support your application will need to be provided in hard copy. This is because the functionality can’t be added to applications that are already in progress.

If you would like the option to provide evidence electronically, you’ll need to withdraw your application in GMC online and submit a new application.

If you’re unsure what date your application was created in GMC online, you can contact us to find out.

It’s important you only follow the guidance relevant to you below, depending on when you created your application in GMC online.

Applications started in GMC online before 6 November 2018

To list the evidence you intend to submit, click on the view/edit button to the right of the list and follow the instructions immediately below.

Every time you complete a page you must click save. If you don’t do this, the information you’ve entered won’t be saved, and you’ll have to re-enter it. If you want to change anything, you can go back to the relevant section and edit the information you’ve entered - you must do this before submitting your application. Once it’s been submitted, you won’t be able to go back and change it.

Applications started in GMC online on or after 6 November 2018

We’ve created a step-by-step user guide to help you complete your application. This will confirm how you should complete each stage of the application and upload your evidence electronically.

We strongly recommend that you have this user guide open when collating your evidence and completing your online application.

How do I enter my professional experience?

You’ll need to give full details of all the posts you’ve held since your primary medical qualification, starting with the most recent and working backwards. If you’ve worked overseas, please don’t change your overseas post title to match to a UK title – instead, tell us the actual title you held. Examples of post titles include:

  • SHO
  • Registrar
  • Staff Grade
  • District Medical Officer
  • Clinical Tutor
  • Assistant Professor and Resident.

Please also give details of any periods longer than one month when you weren’t practising medicine. This could include:

  • alternative employment
  • clinical attachments
  • vacation
  • study leave
  • maternity leave
  • career breaks
  • unemployment.

You must also give a brief explanation for each period.
